Smoke-free outdoor dining

Smoking is now banned in all outdoor dining areas in Victoria while food is available.   

Smoking will be banned:
  • in outdoor areas at hospitality and food venues used for eating food. This includes footpath dining areas, courtyards during times food is being eaten, or is available to be eaten
  • in all outdoor areas at food fairs. A food fair is an event where the principal activity is the supply of food for consumption at the event
  • in outdoor areas within 10 metres of a food stall or food vendor at organised events (other than a food fair).
